10. Telling People You're a Christian
Slide 10 of 10
Am I saying you shouldn’t be bold about telling people you are a Christian? Of course not! But merely mentioning to others that you’re a Christian is not evangelism.
When I’m asked about my religion these days, rather than saying I’m a Christian, I tell people “I’m a follower of Christ,” or “I have a relationship with Jesus.” Defining myself in this way has opened doors to explain how Jesus calls us not to religion, but to a relationship with Him. “Religious people” are often intrigued to learn how your love for Christ is what motivates your obedience––as opposed to doing religious rituals to appease an angry God.
After discussing what evangelism is not, it’s time to ask God to help you be ready to share the true gospel. “Always be ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within you.” Ask God for help, and then just wait and see the people He brings your way. And I promise you won’t regret it!*
